Huacachina - lake of the desert dunes

Oasis Huacachina - is an oasis located in the Peruvian desert, located 4 kilometers from the city of Ika. It consists of a very beautiful lake, surrounded by large sand dunes.

In Huacachina reside just over a hundred people, but a small lake with palm trees on the banks of the desert attracts many tourists. They are attracted by the opportunity to do sandbording - skiing on the slopes of the dunes on boards, such as snowboards. Boards in the oasis you can rent or buy at almost every turn. Another local entertainment - riding buggies on the dunes.

Some believe that the lake water has healing properties, especially for the treatment of skin diseases and rheumatism.
